GaN Systems has announced its participation at PCIM Europe Digital Days, taking place 7th–8th July, 2020. CEO Jim Witham will participate in two panel sessions, 'GaN Devices - The Game-Changers' and 'Power GaN: Past-Present-Future', illustrating how GaN power semiconductors are becoming the fundamental building block in power electronics.

Furthermore, technical experts from the company will present papers that are top-of-mind in GaN at the event.

Additionally, the company will be showcasing its latest solutions, design tools, and feature exceptional products by companies that have gained advantage with GaN Systems in the consumer, industrial, automotive, and data center industries at its Virtual Experience site.

“While it will be a different PCIM Europe this year, the global power electronics community will once again converge to exchange knowledge and ideas on trends and technologies shaping our industry,” said Jim Witham, CEO of GaN Systems. “We look forward to participating in the discussions and highlight how GaN is establishing itself as a preferred solution.”
